EDEN ESPINOSA RETURNS TO SAN FRANCISCO AS ‘ELPHABA’ IN THE SMASH HIT MUSICAL WICKED

SAN FRANCISCO… Eden Espinosa, who has performed the role of Elphaba to critical acclaim on Broadway, San Francisco, and in Los Angeles, will return to San Francisco to star in the open-ended engagement of WICKED now playing at the Orpheum Theatre. Since it’s opening in the Bay Area a year ago, WICKED has been seen by close to a million people. And the show continues to be a cultural phenomenon having just shattered its own record to become the highest grossing show in Broadway history.

Beginning March 2, Eden will be joining the San Francisco cast that currently includes Kendra Kassebaum, starring as Glinda. This will not be the first time that Eden and Kendra will perform these roles opposite each other on the stage of the Orpheum Theatre here in San Francisco.  They appeared here together when the first national tour of WICKED played a sold-out limited 6-week engagement at the Orpheum Theatre in the summer of 2005.
